Newbie in need of help.

Hello guys,

I've searched your forum for few hours now and couldn't find solution to my problem.

Basically I can't make xampp work, It's installed properly and I get the welcome screen (localhost-that orange screen) but when I try to see any of my files all I get is "Object not find" 404 page.

I've tried to type the htdocs directory as:
http://localhost/htdocs
and tried to refer to a specific test file I created (called new2.php) in that folder via:
localhost/htdocs/new2(w/o-/php)
localhost/new2(w/o-/php)

all in vain, I've uninstalled and installed again and tried to stop and rerun the process, nothing seems to work.


that's my control panel log:

Hi shultz,

Your headline is not selfspeaking. How should anybody searching for already solved threads of the same issue expect what the topic of your post is?
99,999% of all new topics here are requests from newbies for help.

Short answer to your issue:
\xampp\htdocs\new2.php => http://localhost/new2.php
\xampp\htdocs\folder\new2.php => http://localhost/folder/new2.php

best wishes,
Altrea
